Community Manager, BID Learning Network

Tracking Code
6227
Job Description
PATH is an international organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. We accelerate innovation across five platforms—vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations—that harness our entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, we take innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Together, we deliver measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health. 

The Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative’s strategy is based on the premise that better data, plus better decisions, will lead to better health outcomes. Its vision is to empower countries to enhance immunization and overall health service delivery through improved data collection, quality, and use. The BID Initiative will shine a light on the challenges surrounding data collection, quality, and use, and identify practical, country-owned, country-led solutions in immunization that could spread to other health interventions. The Initiative will partner with countries and global health stakeholders to develop and deploy a holistic and scalable approach that focuses on information system products, data management policies, and the practices of people that use them in order to enable evidence-based decision making. These components will be packaged into a replicable solution that can be easily and cost-effectively adapted by additional countries interested in using it to improve their immunization management. If successful, a true tipping point will occur—one in which countries can access, analyze, and act upon accurate immunization data—anytime, anywhere, resulting in improved immunization outcomes.

The BID Initiative Community Manager will be an important member of the BID Learning Network (BLN) team based out of Zambia. The BLN is a peer learning network currently in the development stages, that will be a critical role in the overall BID Initiative work across sub-Saharan Africa. The goal of the BID Learning Network (BLN) is to bring countries together to identify shared problems across Africa; and work together to design appropriate solutions that individuals can use once they return home. Through this collaborative design and learning model, the solutions should be more readily acceptable and accessible to other countries.  Ultimately, by adapting and implementing the common products, practices, and policies, the BLN will contribute to increased immunization rates through improved data quality and use.

PATH seeks to recruit a Community Manager who will play an important role in supporting the overall activities of the BLN across the region. The Community Manager will work closely with the BLN Director to manage the network’s activities and member relationships, and provide overall support to the BLN work.

Job responsibilities will include:

  • Draft correspondence to partners and collaborators, including cover and thank-you letters and general email correspondence.
